Jubin Nautiyal first got noticed for his debut song, Meherbani, from Shaukeens. The singer from Dehradun started getting offers soon after and steadily tasted success. Some of his biggest hits include Bandeya from Jazbaa, Zindagi from Bajrangi Bhaijaan, and then Tere liye from Fitoor.

His latest tracks, Le chala and Gumnam hai koi, are steadily climbing the list of Bollywood hits. While Le chala, composed by Jeet Ganguli and written by Manoj Muntashir, is a low-tempo romantic song, Gumnam is a revised version of the original track with a spooky strain. Jubin is now looking forward to the release of the title track of Raaz 4, which he promises is going to be a treat.

“I listen to a lot of classical music, light classical, western, African percussion music, rock pop, and Sufi. I guess I am a very good listener (laughs). Nusrat saab, Amy Winehouse, John Mayer, Mehdi Hassan saab, Ghulam Ali saab are a few of my favourites,” Jubin states.
